Here are the next 2 finished Bible Cartoons which have been commissioned by UW Sports, a Christian sports ministry in Colorado, USA.


Map Northern Israel Nain
Map showing position of Nain

This is a map I drew, showing the positions of Capernaum & Nain. Jesus & his followers certainly covered a lot of miles walking from place to place!

This is the scene without the figures, which shows the landscape more fully.
The tallest hill, in the background is the Hill of More, at the foot of which the Midianites and Amalekites were encamped before Gideon’s attack upon them (see Judges chp 07).

Here is the scene without the figures, which shows the walls of the town & landscape more fully. I have had to assume that Nain had defensive walls, since a lot of towns & cities in Biblical times did. There were a lot of enemy nations that did send armies against towns & cities in the Bible, so walled defences would make sense. However, I must admit that I haven’t found any evidence during my research (on the internet) that suggests Nain definitely did have defensive walls.
